Robert Barron | – Why We Need Close Friends

Friends, a recent poll from the Survey Center on American Life revealed that people are rapidly losing their close friends, especially men. The number of American men who view themselves as having “no close friends” quintupled over the last 30 years, increasing from 3 percent in 1990 to 15 percent in 2021.

Why is this happening, and how can we reverse it? How can we develop closer friendships? Brandon Vogt and I discuss those questions today.

A listener asks, why does God love us?
